Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The United States of America led by Harry S. Truman is a custom civilization by RawSasquatch, with contributions from Chrisy15, Zharques, and Arilasqueto.



The United States of America is a world "super-power" (which more or less means that it possesses weapons capable of destroying everything on the planet). A relatively young civilization, the United States formed in the 18th century, nearly self-destructed in the 19th century, and became the most powerful and dominant military, technological, cultural and economical civilization in the 20th. One can hardly guess what will happen to it in the 21st.

Harry S. Truman[]

Harry S. Truman was the 33rd president of the United States, serving from 1945 to 1953. A lifetime member of the Democratic Party, he previously served as a U.S. senator from the state of Missouri from 1935 to 1945. Truman implemented the Marshall Plan to rebuild the economy of Western Europe and established both the Truman Doctrine and NATO to contain the expansion of communism. He proposed numerous liberal domestic reforms, but few were enacted by the Conservative Coalition that dominated the Congress. Truman authorized the first and only use of nuclear weapons in war against Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Truman presided over the onset of the Cold War in 1947. He oversaw the Berlin Airlift and Marshall Plan in 1948.

Dawn of Man[]

"Your Cold Warrior spirit is needed more than ever, Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States. An unassuming man of the people from Missouri, you rose to become one of the most consequential and well-regarded presidents of American history. It was you who used nuclear weapons in war for the first and only time, it was you who oversaw the Berlin Airlift and Marshall Plan, it was you who defended South Korea, and expanded civil rights. You were the president who was left to finish one war and defend the free world in the next. And a former great power is once again hungry, one which you have dealt with before. And while you left office unpopular, over time you have come to be realised as one of the great leaders of America.

Many of the issues you faced and provided solutions to have reared their heads once again. The Fair Deal promised to Americans has faded away, reduced to cynicism by corrupt and ineffective politicians. You must revive it. Europe is once again at war, consumed by an imperialist power that seeks to destroy, rather than build. Give 'em Hell, Harry! Can you fulfil the national and international promise of the great United States? Will you build a civilization that can stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Welcome to the United States. With humility, I stand before you by the honor of the American people."

Defeat: "I feel like the moon, the stars, and all the planets have fallen on me. Go to hell."
